Danny Bowes and Luke Morley from British Rock giants Thunder will be heading out on tour throughout November of this year with their Spoken Word and Acoustic Music tour ‘The First 50 Years’. The show features an evening of funny and personal tales based around their brilliant new book, ‘Danny Bowes & Luke Morley – The First 50 Years’, which is published in October by A Way With Media [pre sales are open now]. The shows also offer a scattering of acoustic versions of some of the fans’ favourites from throughout their remarkable career.
At these intimate, unguarded and very funny shows, the Thunder stalwarts will tell the remarkable story of one of rock music’s most enduring friendships. Danny & Luke became friends in September 1971, when they met at secondary school. Through the ups and downs of life on the road, their friendship has never wavered; though this tour may test it!
The book ‘Danny Bowes & Luke Morley – The First 50 Years’ charts the duo’s history with the band, is narrated by Mick Wall, and told by Danny & Luke. Packed with pictures and full of facts, the book is in a strictly limited edition of 2000 [with many sold already] and comes with hardback cover, as a cloth bound edition, with luxurious heavy duty paper and presented in a hard protective “clamshell” case.
Tickets and VIP packages are available from www.thunderonline.com/site/gigs/forthcoming
With both the tour and the book, ‘Danny Bowes & Luke Morley – The First 50 Years’ offers fans not just of Thunder but of Rock music in general a peek behind the curtain, stories about the great and the good that the band have collected along the way, some fantastic live music, and plenty of laughs. In short: the perfect night out. Here’s to the next 50…
